Directed by Claire Denis | 1994

With Yekaterina Golubeva, Alex Descas, Richard Courcet

Based on real events, Denis’ take on the serial killer thriller is a typically elusive, sensitive study of outsiderhood. On the margins of Paris, the lives of several struggling immigrants—including a Lithuanian aspiring actress and a gay West Indian drag performer—intersect against the backdrop of a wave of shocking murders, crimes depicted by Denis not as sensationalistic but as the chillingly banal product of desperate alienation.
